Mark Cavendish Is A Believer Once Again

Joe Robinson 13 Apr 2021 Victory at the Tour of Turkey was as much down to Cavendish's undeniable self-belief as it was his ability Words : Joe Robinson Photography : Deceuninck-QuickStep Is Mark Cavendish back ? In a word, no. No, Mark Cavendish is not back, at least not to the Cavendish of days gone by – the man who won 20 Tour de France stages in four years, who launched a rocket of a sprint at the 2009 Milan-San Remo to win a race that he had no right to win and who completely reinvented the discipline of sprinting with his HTC-Columbia team. Cavendish is not about to hit an Indian Summer within his career either. Don’t expect the Manxman to have a Michael Jordan ‘Last Dance’ moment, headlining the Deceuninck-QuickStep team at the Tour later this year with his eyes on another six-stage haul. No one, including Mark ...

Astana Poach Alexander Vlasov From Gazprom-Rusvelo

Aleksandr Vlasov (Gazprom - RusVelo)

Astana have moved early to secure the services of young Russian talent Alexander Vlasov , buying out the final year of his contract with Gazprom-RusVelo to take him to the WorldTour from 2020. Vlasov turned pro with Gazprom in 2018 and enjoyed a season that suggested he had a bright future ahead of him. Though he did ride in professional and WorldTour races, his success came in the U23 events as he won the Giro d’Italia and finished fourth at the Tour de l’Avenir. This year he has claimed top ten overall finishes at the Ruta del Sol, Tour of the Alps, and Settimana Coppi e Bartali, top fives at the Tour of Austria – where he won a stage – and Giro di Sicilia, and podiums at the Tour of Slovenia and Vuelta a Asturias.

Landa, Carapaz And Amador To Lead Movistar At Giro D'Italia

Mikel Landa (Movistar)

Not chastened by their experiences at last year’s Tour de France, Movistar are taking a three-pronged approach to the Giro d’Italia this May. The Spanish team will look to Mikel Landa , Andrey Amador and Richard Carapaz for their general classification ambitions. One notable omission from the team is Alejandro Valverde, who was meant to be riding the Corsa Rosa but had to pull out after a training crash ahead of Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Given their previous performances, Landa – who is expected to leave the team at the end of the season - is likely to be the team’s best hope for the overall classification. Though, Carapaz has been on fine form recently and will be looking to improve on last year’s performance. Landa took his first Grand Tour podium at the 2015 Giro d’Italia, after duking it out with his Astana teammate Fabio Aru and eventual winner Alberto Contador. In ...

Dylan van Baarle (Team Sky) crosses the line on stage 4 of the 2019 Herald Sun Tour

Team Sky 's Dylan van Baarle will make a return to the Belgian Classics at the Dwars door Vlaanderen one-day race in Belgium on Wednesday – a month to the day since breaking his hand at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. The Dutchman made a return to racing at the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali stage race in Italy last week – a race where the roads are considerably less severe than the famous cobbles of northern Europe. "When we were in the hospital and the doctor told me my hand was broken, in the back of my mind I was still thinking, 'Ah, maybe I can make it for Flanders,'" said Van Baarle on his team's website. "But I knew that, normally, if your hand is broken it should be at least six weeks out. "Thankfully, everything has gone really well. The surgeon did a really good job, and it ...
